RIG statement on content supply review

The Radio Independents Group, the trade body for indie audio production companies across the UK, today commented on the publication of the BBC Trust consultation on BBC content supply across TV, radio and online:

Will Jackson, Managing Director of RIG, said:

“Tony Hall’s desire to have more competition needs to be realised in radio as well as TV. The Trust’s 2010 radio supply review concluded that the BBC should do more to commission the best ideas  regardless of source, but radio commissioning still remains at least 80% in-house.”

“This important new review provides a great opportunity for indie radio production companies across the UK to highlight how much more creativity, ideas and talent they could give to Licence Fee Payers.”

“"We're in the process of conducting the biggest-ever census of the indie audio production sector, which will inform our full response to the Trust in due course."
